His comeback this time seems unlikely. Not only Sunil, Chandan Prabhakar and Ali Asgar too are reportedly planning to opt out of the show.
History repeats itself and how. Around 3.5 years back, Sunil Grover aka Gutthi had quit Kapil’s show Comedy Nights With Kapil to start a show of his own. He later reunited with Kapil, after the show did not work out. The two collaborated again for a fresh show TKSS, and now after an ugly fight, Sunil has reportedly resolved never to come back on the show even if his fee is doubled. His contract with Sony will come to an end on April 23.
His comeback this time seems unlikely. Not only Sunil, Chandan Prabhakar and Ali Asgar too are reportedly planning to opt out of the show. While Kapil tried his best to convince Sunil, he is now left with no choice but to get a new army. According to a source, Indian Idol host Paritosh Tripathi is set to join Kapil’s team. He will “play a frustrated and tharki old man” according to TellyChakkar. He has already shot for an episode.
Apart from Paritosh, TKSS has also roped in Raju Srivastava, Sunil Pal, Ahsaan Qureshi and Rajeev Thakur as guests for a couple of episodes. Meanwhile, the TRP of TKSS are witnessing a downward trend from the past two weeks. According to BARC India, from last week’s 6.4 million impressions, it has slipped further to 6 million impressions. We are yet to see how the absence of Dr. Mushoor Gulati and Rinku Bhabhi (both played by Sunil Grover) will affect TKSS.
